New Native Nations Resources Now Available!

The successful reclamation and exercise of Ojibwe treaty rights in the late twentieth century is one of the defining moments in the history of the Anishinaabe (also referred to as Ojibwe or Chippewa) people in Wisconsin and central Great Lakes region. It was also a turning point in relations between the state of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota and the eleven federally recognized Ojibwe sovereign nations.

Created in collaboration with the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission, the Department of Public Instruction, and the Wisconsin Historical Society, the purpose of these materials is to support the use of the Ogichidaa Storytellers Videos in grades 6–12 classrooms. Included are enduring understandings and essential questions to frame learning, extension activities to connect the past to the present and the future, a glossary of key vocabulary words, and lesson ideas for the six Ogichidaa Storytellers Videos.

Stream the videos and download the materials from the Wisconsin First Nations website today!
